How to Draw a Pony by GiantMosquito How to Draw a Pony by GiantMosquito
People occasionally ask me how I got as good as I am. Although I'm far from the best fan-artist out there, I thought I'd make this helpful guide to help people learn the process of constructing a cartoon character out of simple shapes. Also, this joke is so very old.

If you do step one plus lines for the legs, that's a pretty solid representation of how i draw and explain.

I like the Tick version. Draw a circle with guidelines. Now draw the Tick holding it.

Actually, I never drew any circles to start a sketch I just drew what I saw. Without circles with lines in them.
I never understood this technique with circles with lines in them :/ I am weird

Some people need the circles and lines to create a more efficient sense of space. Others like you; probably have better depth perception ;)
